Generous Grovedale couple to share most of their $800,000 Wednesday Lotto prize with their loved ones
Forget fine dining and fancy holidays, a Grovedale couple can’t wait to share their $800,000 Wednesday Lotto prize with their loved ones – with only a new computer on their own wish list.
The winners held one of the five division one winning entries nationally in Monday & Wednesday Lotto draw 4067, drawn Wednesday 7 April 2021. Each entry takes home a division one prize worth $800,000.
Speaking with us, the Victorian pair said they’d been in a state of pure bliss since making the discovery this morning.
“I am feeling very emotional,” the winning woman elucidated.
“I’ve only just stopped crying.
“We only found out this morning when we saw your email. I just thought ‘did I really win?’.
“We’ve actually only been playing these numbers for a few months!
“The first time we played the numbers we won division three and now we’ve won division one!
“I picked these numbers because I had a feeling they were lucky and they are!
“I am just so happy. I can’t believe it!
“The news hasn’t sunk in yet. I just can’t wait to share this news with everyone and celebrate.”
When asked how they planned to enjoy their windfall, the giving couple thought of others first.
“We just want to help our family and our friends,” the winning man continued.
“We will keep about $100,000 for ourselves and the rest we would like to share with everyone.
“One thing we will do is get a new computer, ours has had it.”
The winning marked 18-game entry was sold at Gladstone Park Lotto & Service Centre, Shop 165, Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, 8-34 Gladstone Park Drive, Gladstone Park.
Gladstone Park Lotto & Service Centre owner Rong Mei said the outlet was celebrating their division one win.
“How good is that!” he exclaimed.
“We are so incredibly happy for our winners and we hope they have some exciting plans for their prize.
“We actually only sold a Monday & Wednesday Lotto division one winning ticket a few weeks ago, so we are feeling very lucky.
“Hopefully, it’s the start of a winning streak and we can deliver more major wins to our customers.”
